2A016. I have seen them on a water pump, a generator, and a gasoline fueled forced air tent heater. Most turn 3600 RPM.

If you're married, you must have a very easy going wife!

My wife is pretty good about putting up with my hobby, but she draws the line at having engines on the coffee table!

I have a genset up on ebay right now that as the same engine. Mine is older though, has the oil bath type air cleaner vs. the newer ones shown in these photos have the paper filter element. I belive mine was in made in 1962. http://ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem=280301716349
